, michelle obama with a surprise appearance at the oscars. if you fell asleep, you missed it. was it bigger than blockbuster or just a bomb. >> plus, let's go "outfront." >>> and we begin tonight with new developments. cnn has just learned that governor chris christie, a key 2016 republican presidential hopeful, is not invited to the conservative political action conference in washington, d.c. next week. that's according to a source close to c-pac, and c-pack, if you haven't heard of it, is often considered a must-attend for anybody who wants to win the white house from the gop. senator marco rubio of florida, louisiana governor bobby jindal, former florida governor jeb bush, rand paul of kentucky, rick perry of texas, they're all already on the list. is this a snub for chris christie? this news breaking late this afternoon. how big of a snub is it the. >> it makes a lot of sense for cpac, because frankly, chris christie was not going to show up this year, so why bother asking him and then get snubbed by the governor himself? just do the snubbing yourself and say we don't want you here. it
. for two reasons, ali. first of all, president obama is in the sweet spot of his presidency, the moment of maximum leverage that occurs for a president right after re-election. basically around 18 months at the start of a second term where a president can push through almost anything he wants. second of all, he's positioned to pull a nixon in china. just as only a committed anti-communist like nixon could go to china, someone like a pragmatic aggressive like president obama could appeal to his base and still get tough entitlement cuts through as part of a grand bargain. this is a moment of rare opportunity but it takes presidential leadership and that, frankly, has been lacking. >> one approach that republicans have put forward is the idea of a balanced budget amendment. >> the real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. >> republicans, margaret, are not blameless in this, bush era tax cuts, wars in afghanistan and iraq are major drivers. the spending cuts that a balanced bu
, president obama challenged congress to vote on proposals to get weapons of war off our streets. but will it happen? can it happen? we'll talk to a world leader who made it happen in his nation. >>> then, larry summers on how to create jobs in america. the former treasury secretary on how the president can achieve the goals he laid out for the economy. >>> then, many worry that the world's second largest economy is headed for a crash. a rare inside look at the inner workings of the chinese economy. what's really happening there? >>> also, what in the world will get north korea to end its nuclear ambitions? i'll give you my plan. but, first, here's my take. president obama's state of the union address presented an expanded vision of smart government to create jobs and revive the economy. it had many important ideas in it. yet, he lowered his sights on the single policy that would both jump start the economy in the short term and create the conditions for long-term growth. infrastructure spending, having tried several times to propose infrastructure bills of around $50 billion, ju
obama will head to chicago to speak at a south side high school. he's expected to focus on improving the middle class but also he'll likely talk about gun violence. that's because 15-year-old hadiya pendleton was shot and killed a mile from obama's chicago home, days after performing at the inaugural luncheon in washington, d.c., during inaugural week. that sparked a petition with nearly 50,000 signatures demanding the president visit chicago and outline a specific plan to prevent gun violence. joining us from chicago is the woman who helped start the coalition, kathy cohen and mike shields, president of the chicago fraternal order of police. welcome to you both. >> good morning. >> thanks for having us. >> kathy, the president made a plea for congress to vote on his gun control proposals during the state of the union. that didn't satisfy you? >> no. i mean we're really looking for the president to offer a comprehensive analysis of kind of the factors that underlie gun violence. we support the president in looking for legislation to deal with gun control, but we also want the preside
is interesting because this comes just before president obama is going to deliver his "state of the union" message. and the north koreans, as they have done many times in the past, have managed to insert themselves into the middle of everybody else's agenda. there is no way that president obama will be able to deliver that message without having to say something substantive about north korea. it comes just four days before the birthday of the late north korean leader, kim jong il. and i am sure the propaganda machine will be an overdrive trumping this as a great success cementing the legacy and further illustrating how much his son and heir is doing a great job. and in the region, i think it is going to send all kinds of ways of anxiety. south korea, it raises questions for the incoming president who has talked about wanting to reach out to north korea appeared very unclear whether she will be able to do that now. instead likely to be forced into a much more confrontational position care japan, governed by a conservative right-wing prime minister, is searching for ways to get tougher on n
of their lives. >> drew, what about obama care? wasn't that supposed to keep hospital costs down? >> it was. but in reality, jake, there is nothing in obama care aimed at reducing the actual costs of health care. some are arguing that obama care, the forcing of everybody to be in this insurance plan or pay a penalty, is actually going to increase the costs we are paying because in very simple economic terms, you're increasing the amount of people who will be paying for all the health care, increasing demand, and there's really no incentive for the suppliers like these hospitals, to charge any less. steven bril, the author of the "time magazine" report said with obama care we've changed the rules related to who pays for what, but we haven't done much to change the prices of what we're paying. >> where does all this profit end up? >> yeah, it is flowing right into the hands of hospitals and the insurers. tomorrow night, jake, we're going show you exactly whose hands are literally raking in millions of dollars in all this. >> all right. excellent report. one more quick point, "time" special co
with the shooting of this high school student gunned down just days after performing at president obama's inauguration. her funeral was saturday. police gave a news conference earlier tonight. let's go to ted rowlands in chicago. >> the death of hadiya pendalson has struck a nerve not only in chicago but across the country. tonight, they have two men in custody. they were both picked up on saturday night on suspicion and have been charged with one count of murder each, and two counts of attempted murder each, plus some weapons violations. michael ward, according to police, has confessed to killing her by accident. he says he approached a group of people he thought also had rival gang members in the group, and opened fire. he didn't realize that he was opening fire on a 15-year-old and her friends after they had just completed a final exam in high school. ward said he got out of a car, shot the individuals under this overhang in a park and was taken away in a getaway car by williams. according to police, nobody stepped forward. the break came from police getting leads, going out and find
his confirmation at least for now. they are demanding more information from president obama on the attack in benghazi. joining me as they do every week on cnn, democratic strategist maria cordona and amy holmes, editor for "the blaze." maria, i'll start with you. >> good morning. >> talk about a testy confirmation hearing. is this just the latest part of some playground, or do you think there's more to this? >> i think it is absolutely the latest in partisan politics, susan. and i think it doesn't bode well for the republicans. they already have a perception from the american people that this is the party of no, the party of obstruction. the party that just wants to deny president obama whatever it is that he is asking for. and they haven't really offered anything positive for the american people to support them on. and i think this is just the latest in that. and you see it from their own words, they said, look, this is just a hold, we're not going to -- we just need him to wait for a little bit. we want more from the administration on benghazi. that's a little ridiculous b
lot better. hurry. $14.95 won't last. s . >>> president obama must be feeling confident in his golf game these days, because the white house confirms that he played 18 holes with tiger woods. the president is on a mini vacation to a florida resort this weekend. his foursome included the owner of the course who is a major democratic donor. >>> and firefighters intercepted three small planes that were flying in the president's air space. >>> senator john mccain has been lead i leading the republican charge against the response in benghazi as well as the nominee of chuck hagel. does mccain have a bigger strategy in play or is he just trying to get to the truth? i talked about it to l.z. gra granderson and ana navarro, and i started with the tough new comments from mccain on "meet the press." >> you said a cover-up, and a cover-up of what? >> of the information of concerning the deaths of four brave americans. the information has not been forthcoming. you can obviously believe that it has, but i know that it hasn't. and i will be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not be
and barack obama, right before the election. and i know, by the way, today, mitt romney just gave money to chris christie's gubernatorial campaign. so mitt doesn't seem to be holding a grudge. but a lot of people were really upset about that, thought it was influential in the election. uh i'm just wondering if this was a part of it. the paul ryan voting for $600 billion in tax increases seems to be a way bigger violation than a $60 billion spending bill. >> well, i can't make any comments on a decision that an organization made. i mean, they invited me, they didn't invite chris, they have the reasons, you heard them. my feeling is, you know, the republican party, the great thing about the republican party, it's unlike the democratic party. there is a fair amount of diversity in our party. you guys on cnn, as well as other networks, spend a lot of time talking about the divisions in the republican party. and then you try to -- you make the claim, well, you know, the democratic party is a more inclusive party. well, wait a minute, there is no division of the democratic party. you don't ta
day. we stay well we get it done. >> president obama will hear some of that anger firsthand when he visited the hampton roads region of virginia. defense spending makes up nearly half the region's economy and as we saw from a republican blitz there yesterday makes it fertile ground for the blame game. here's dan lothian. >> reporter: from the welders to sheet metal workers, washington's inability to avert deep cuts has left them concerned about their futures. >> everybody's talking about it. everybody's worried. >> reporter: last week the military notified bae that work on 13 ships at several of its sites would have to stop if a deal wasn't struck. >> if it goes fully and we run completely out of work there will be a skeletal crew in here just to keep the plant up and running. >> reporter: this air of uncertainty is why some members of virginia's congressional delegation took part in a town hall meeting in newport news monday. where they got an earful from residents. >> i've given my personal salary into my business because i love my business and you guys i think need to do the same
. >> president obama is beefing up security. he invoked private sector to work with the government to prevent hacking. you look at that and say that's not going to come easy. there's time involved with that. you do this for a living. what do you think can be done right now? >> well, i think companies really need to invest in security. we deal with a lot of the fortune 100 and 1000 companies out there. it's never been easier to break into them. i can't think of a time and place where i've been stopped from breaking into an organization. i think companies really need to take security seriously and really focus on protecting the organizations and intellectual property because the government spt going to be able to do it for them. focusing on fixing high impact vulnerabilities and making sure they can protect their organizations. at the end of the day those seek res make us strong as an economy. these breaches are very, very, very common. we deal with breaches on wide scales all the time and almost always originating from the chinese government. >> pretty frightening. david mckenzie, thanks for y
're post-racial because we have a black president and millions of white folks turned barack obama into their own person cliff huxtable. >> anthony, do you agree with that? >> absolutely. i think especially we're talking about the whole big picture of hollywood and where we all work. on the surface, it's liberal. but when you look deeper than that, it's completely face value. and it's always an issue. and i think it's the consciousness that we need to continue to bring up and to discuss. that will only help us move forward. >> jamison, you made a point, we were talking about news. and i said if it's the black guy on the news on the weekend and i said, how many brown-skinned brothers do you see anchoring the news. and you said, what? >> one. one. just one. just you. just you. turn the channel. turn the channel, come back. you'll be right here. >> where's the arab guy? >> where's the arab guy? the arab anchor? seriously, dean, where's the arab anchor, the asian anchor, the hispanic anchor? where are the brown-skinned african-american news anchors? >> why does it matter on cnn? we've
candidates, mitt romney and president obama, talked about during the last campaign. they're all still out there. we haven't touched any of those. >> well, just to be fair, mitt romney said he would lower the tax rate in exchange for closing those, and you did limit deductions as part of the federal -- part of the fiscal cliff deal. so let me ask you about that specifically, because this whole tax issue, adam davidson and i quote him every single night so i hope he listens, co-founder of npr's planet money noted in the "new york times" that increasing the middle class tax burden by an additional 8% would have a bigger impact than taxing millionaires at 100% and of course, congressman, leaders of your own party, bill clinton also knows this. here's bill clinton at a conference i was at with him a year ago. >> i think you could tax me at 100% and you wouldn't balance the budget. we all have to contribute to this. if middle class people's wages were going up again and we had some growth in the economy, i don't think they would object to going back to the tax rates that i obtained when i was p
's hard to believe there will be any 11th hour compromise given the testy exchanges between the obama administration and congressional republicans. let's check in with brianna keilar at the white house. any movement at all? >> reporter: as of now, john, i will tell you the differences between the two sides here with the white house and senate democrats on one side and house republicans on the other appear to be insurmountable. the divide remaining at this point on how to avert these $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts. house republicans would like to see some less arbitrary spending cuts only and democrats and the white house want to see a combination of tax increases and some less arbitrary spending cuts. it's this debate we've gotten so used to and that means that these spending cuts that were put in place in 2011 with the idea they'd never go into effect are expected to go into effect as of friday night. the blame game in full effect in washington and it's getting a little crass. listen. >> we have moved a bill in the house twice. we should not have to move a third bill b
as well, soledad that the white house, president obama and fema are in touch with local and state officials ahead of this storm. >> it's good to hear on that front because it looks like it's going to be bad. brianna, thank you. indra petersons, in boston, 34 inches really? >> reporter: i want to you imagine you are in boston. it's been a mild winter, we're about 15 inches below normal for snow amounts and this morning we're seeing temperatures at the freezing mark. winds are gusting, 20-mile-per-hour steady winds but overall clear visibility. i want to show you where the customs tower is. this is less than a quarter mile, you can clearly see this this morning. by the afternoon, we're expecting snowfall rates of two to three inches per hour, gusts anywhere from 50 to even 70 miles per hour and that's the reason we have the blizzard warning in effect. this monstrous blizzard is expected to bring visibility down near zero. when all is said and done i can be standing here with three feet of snow and i can have banks of snow or flurries above my head. everyone is doing exactly what the
africa for the latest on the case in a few. >>> president obama is calling on congress to pass laws to reduce gun violence. during an appearance at a chicago high school, the president said 65 out of 443 victims killed last year in gun violence in the city were under 18. he mentioned hadiya pendleton, the teenager gunned down a week after taking part in obama's inauguration festivities. >> what happened to hadiya is not unique. it's not unique to chicago. it's not unique to this country. too many of our children are being taken away from us. >> the president said children from violence-laden opportunities need help to get ahead. >>> this week, a meteor shower, asteroid, and now a fireball? this happened in the bay area last night. folks in that area say it looked like a shooting star. cnn does not know the source of the lights, but we are efforting an official statement for you.

to control health care costs, in obama care, nothing addresses these specific runaway costs in hospital billing fees. any support in washington to try and drive these costs down? >> you know, let me put this in perspective for you, and, jake, you know how that town washington works. this is in "time" magazine's special edition. according to the center for responsive politics, since 199, doctors and hospitals have spent 5 5.36 billion lobbying in washington. double of the defense industry and the oil and gas industry combined. so people make money in health care certainly have the government's ear and i might ad add they have our pockets. >> indeed. drew griffin, thanks. >>> a grisly discovery on a hotel rooftop in los angeles. a decomposing body found in a water tank where it might have been for as long as 2 1/2 weeks while hotel guests used that water. the latest on the investigation and we'll take you inside that hotel. next. ♪ come on, boy!
